“Daddy, where do memory cards come from?” From a very clean place.

These tiny little nuggets of data storage, that keep dropping in price, must be tough to make, right?

Film is still available but with the final Kodachrome lab closing it’s doors at the end of Dec. 2010, well, you know the rest.

What ever you choose, just nice to know where it comes from.
